Ah yes, Yabo the Yarbarian

Well looky here, on the old coulterville road below still accessible before the huge ass rock slide. I bet George drove to the base that day at the cookie taking the Yabo on the wheat thin monkey hanging picture.

We used to drive right up that road and park right at the base of Catchy. Now you have to walk. Not good. Car is better. We should build roads everywhere, no? hehehe

Those are great photos George, to bad the first batch of photos you took for the Yosemite Climber book you were making got stolen.

You think the worm that did it still has them some where?

WB are you saying the shots in "the Good Book" are seconds! Oh my god, I really feel like a shmuck living my life aspiring to climb every route in there( for the last 27 years, or when ever it was published) and now to find out those aren't the first choices, I'm gonna Cry.....

The " Bird" is not bulky by any means. I think your point of refference (select old classic pics posted on this site) has slighty skewed your perspective.
Some modern day high end climbers have trained so specifically for climbing that they are " wide" and narrow kind of weird looking IMHO.
The main difference between monkeys and climbers is "Monkey Butt", on second thought maybe that isn't a difference...

Here's an unlikely Yabo anecdote relating to your book George:

Referring to the pictures you took of him at New Diversions, the shot with him running the rope out nicely on the big fat knobs; Yabo "complained" that you asked him to run the rope out for the pictures! Now is that unlikely or what?! Poor Yabo, "made" to run it out. Next story he tossed out, something about him "choosing" to do Wheat Thin for photos, without clipping any of the bolts. Now that's our boy...

'Dunno Lois,

Just part of his unfettered subconscious coming out and stuff.
Playtime: that's art.

I mean, others might not like to deconstruct or interpret stuff,
But everything besides the tents is like a backdrop; sullen, everlasting, and beautiful.
Then there is our little yellow toy time camping reality, sitting up at the front edge of the stage.

I guess it's that gap that you can't bridge, that you have to feel, that makes it compelling work; you know, fill in the blanks with your feelings and intuition. For me, that's art.

Again, I really like this one.

Lois, I'm with Tar as far as the unfettered subconcious part.
Take it for what it helps you feel, that's what it's worth, imfufho! -a lot, btw!!!!!!

Also, The push me pull you microbus speaks to a lot of us, though it really shoulda bin a split window*!
